    The photo-book draws the attention to the implementation of the “Developing Capacity for Strengthening Food Security and Nutrition in Selected Countries of the Caucasus and Central Asia” project in Armenia, launched by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and funded by the Russian Federation. The FAO project assists the Government of Armenia to improving the effectiveness of the National School Feeding Programme and creating sustainable value chains, testing various models of vegetable production in greenhouses in school areas. This book shows how the inclusion in the diet of schoolchildren of fresh vegetables and herbs grown on the school grounds will allow you to diversify the menu, enrich it with useful vitamins and minerals, so necessary for the healthy development of the child’s body. Climatic conditions, as well as the availability of free space in the territory of many schools in Armenia, are a stable base for creating school greenhouses, where you can grow products for school meals.
